She’s just as happy as can be!
Hi, fresh baby girl!
Tell us about that first moment when you saw your baby.
I just remember how exhausted and uncomfortable I was during the delivery, but once the doctor said to look at our baby, A sudden overwhelming calm and love came over me and I haven’t stopped smiling since. For my husband, I looked up and saw tears in his eyes and a huge grin. He said he never felt so proud.
What was your baby’s birth weight and length?
Anabelle weighed in at a whopping 6lbs 6oz and 18inches long .
Is there a story behind your baby’s name?
There is not really a story behind her name other than Jimmy & I both really liked it.. & after about an hour or two of going through names… We probably got a little A.D.D. and couldn’t make it past the A’s. We picked one of the top five that we had at the time and alas Anabelle was our little girls name!
Give us the scoop. What has surprised you the most about parenthood? Are there any funny stories or firsts that you’d like to share?
I think what has surprised us the most is that while we are first time parents and had absolutely no idea what to do once we brought our daughter home, somehow we just managed to figure things out and everything has worked out okay. I am also surprised how great you can feel on two hours of solid sleep!
What did you like best about your experience with Crystal Jo?
What was not to love! From the moment we walked, Crystal Jo made us feel right at home. It was such a calm and laid back experience. As a new parent, I was put at ease as Crystal Jo soothed and calmed our little girl between pictures. She made everything so quick and easy for us even allowing time for diaper changes and feedings. We look forward to having Crystal Jo capture how our little girl grows throughout the next year!
